Default Finally cleared the breakers...

After the last few windy weekends today being Easter we were blessed with light winds and rollers. Headed out after noon to find some trigger. Took about 30 minutes to get a 4 person limit.

My daughter caught one of the biggest I've seen, at least on our boat. Pushing 24" and real thick. The others were 15 to 19". The smaller ones are much easier to clean.

Beautiful day. Trolled for a bit but nothing doing. Ran in at nearly 40mph on slick seas. Thankful for a great day and the freedom to enjoy it.

That's a trash can lid for sure. One of the biggest trigs I've seen too. I bet he fought like a devil.
